Door Mirrors

Post by MrT » Fri Apr 23, 2021 2:31 pm

After 2 days at the dealership they have determined that the UK ID4 First Edition does not have the convenience reverse dipping mirror functionality. This is disappointing as the functionality helps prevent wheel damage when parallel parking.
They have checked all their other stock ID4’s and confirmed that the PR build does not include this option.

Is it clear if this is available on any trim?

I would like to buy an ID.4 and I was comparing the 1st Edition to the 'Style' 55 kWh model and the 'Max' 82 kWh model and neither of those mention reverse dipping functionality?!

Unsure, the dealer only checked the UK first edition against the PR code (Unfortunaterly I don't have the PR code for the functionality). Probably best to check with your local VW sales team.

I was also surprised by this having recently come to the id4 from a Golf R Estate but, having experimented with manually adjusting the mirror to mimic the reverse dipping, I think it is a function of the the size of the mirror glass and the housing itself i.e. it is physically not able to move enough to give the 'down and in' view of the rear tyre.
